Abstract/Summary The ability of the new graduate physiotherapist to perform safely and competently in a range of clinical settings is integral to the effective delivery of patient services. As such, entry level curriculum must match the competencies required of a practicing physiotherapist. Electrophysical agents (EPAs) are a core competence required of Australian new graduate physiotherapists. There is currently a paucity of published research on how physiotherapy entry level education is designed to ensure that new graduates are prepared in those EPAs considered essential for safe and competent practice. The broad goal of the research program was to ascertain if a discrepancy existed between entry level physiotherapy curricula and contemporary clinical practice. To achieve this, two separate prospective studies were conducted sequentially.
